It’s expected to achieve more than US$20,000 at Skinner Auctioneers this June
A rare bottle of whiskey—the oldest known to exist, according to Skinner Auctioneers—will be offered in the range of between US$20,000 and US$40,000 this June.
The bottle, known as the Old Ingledew Whiskey, was originally estimated to be from 1850. Joseph Hyman, a fine spirits specialist at Skinner, in partnership with scientists at the University of Georgia and the University of Glasgow, tested the whiskey and determined that it was most likely bottled between 1763-1803, making it the oldest whiskey bottle known.

"Life is precious because you can’t watch it again. I mean, you can believe in an afterlife if that makes you feel better. Doesn’t mean it’s true. But once you realize you’re not gonna be around forever, I think that’s what makes life so magical.
One day you’ll eat your last meal, smell your last flower, hug your friend for the very last time. You might not know it’s the last time, so that’s why you should do everything you love with passion, you know? Treasure the few years you’ve got because that’s all there is."
I am blessed by a woman that when we started dating took a huge leap of faith. I was still trying to find my way and she was already established in her career. Without her providing most of the income for the first few years I would not have been able to cut my teeth and establish myself in a small company. She has never shared, but I know her friends thought she was nuts back then.
Good day today. Borrowed an uncles 2009 challenger, washed it, cleaned it up some. My mom came over and watched both girls while Sarah and went out. Sarah wanted to go to kohl’s, so she went there. Then we went to a cruise in for about 30 minutes. Then went to a steak house for dinner.
